Building Judicial Excellence Through Self-Assessment and Action Planning
The proposed initiative in revitalizing the oversight mechanism of the judicial system through technological advancement is pivotal to not only a good working democracy, but also to ensure quality, impartial and gender responsive judicial services to society.
A key component of advancing the rule of law is the accountability of the courts. The International Framework for Court Excellence (IFCE) and UNDP Judiciary Integrity checklist is expected enhance court excellence activities and ensure accountability of the courts’ system in Lao PDR.
Judicial excellence is vital for the protection and realization of human rights. The covid-19 pandemic has caused delays or high costs in the justice system, which resulted in limited access to justice, especially for the vulnerable.
